Description

The idea of this site specific installation is to cross the signals of three different Buenos Aires's galleries surveillance TV closed circuits. This galleries -Ruth Benzacar, Klemm, CCEBA- are located in a 100 meters radio. Although they are very prestigious and important in the contemporary art circuit, they are in basements. From this underground neither of them have windows and they are closed places. The idea was to open a TV "window" to see through the security cameras of their neighbor galleries. The circuit was thought in a way A cam is shown in B gallery, B cam is shown i C gallery and C cam is shown in a gallery. This project was very difficult to develop because it needed many permissions to be done. While waiting for this to happen one of the galleries (CCEBA) offered to show the schemes in one of its walls.
